The water dispensing solenoid valve, located on the back of unit where the hose water supply tube attaches to your unit may be bad or the wiring to that valve may be loose. If wiring connection seems to be okay, problem is probably the solenoid valve.

SOURCE: Kenmore Refrigerator making loud sounds at shutdown

the compressor has a loose or broken spring inside the compressor, unfortunatly it can not be repaired without replacing the compressor, it could last many more years and it could quit as we speak.

best thing is to let the neighbor know of the problem and what is the repair that way they won't think you are ponning off the machine to them, it may outlast your new one, time will tell

SOURCE: Right Door is making loud popping noise

Now that the hinge mechanism is lubricated with no result it is presumed that the popping sound is because of the escape of compressed air from inside the refrigerator. so nothing to worry about so far it is maintaining its cool temperature inside.

Good luck!!!!!!!

SOURCE: every 20 mins or so the fride--a11 yr old

is it shutting off when it makes that clunking noise? if so, thats the compressor making the noise. the motor inside the shell casing, which is suspended on four springs, is banging agasint the shell casing because one of those springs has stretched or broken. You need to replace compressor. if its been happening for a while, i would start looking for a new model. if its more recent, and not very loud, you haver more time, but in either case, it could just cease up at any time. to hgave your compressor replaced, and unless your an HVAC tech you should most assuredly NOT do it yourself, its quite expensive, at or near the cost of buying a new one.

A good guess is the fan in the freezer is coming in contact with something. Most likely ice buildup which indicates a failure in the defrost section. If the noise is coming from the freezer side, just behind the food this is almost a for sure thing. It may just be going out as well, which is good because then you wouldn't have a problem with the defrost section :)

If the noise is coming from the back of the refrigerator at the bottom, what we have there is a compressor and a fan that keeps the compressor cool (called a condenser fan). If it's the condenser fan, it probably just needs to be replaced, and or adjusted from whatever it is coming in contact with. If it's the compressor, lets hope it's just rattling and can be tightened down. If it is something inside the compressor you will have to live with the noise or replace the compressor. The sad part is, replacing a compressor is generally not cost effective, at which point you buy a new refrigerator.

These are really the only three things that can make that type of noise. I hope I was of some help. If i can clear anything else up or answer anymore questions please let me know! good luck!

It could be that the cooling area is being restricted by something. Remove the front panel and take a look to make sure everything looks ok. You should have a warranty and I would sure use that before you have more problems...

My toilet has a 1 yr old fluidmaster valve assembly bad it takes nearly 3 minutes to fill after flush,a make s a loud hissing sound. I have another toilet thank takes 36 seconds to fill and more quiet,...

The fill valve may be clogged with dirt or scale. After turning the water supply valve off remove the top of the valve by grasping the black cap section with one hand and the shaft section below with the other. Turn 1/4 turn and the top should come off. Check for any dirt or scale on the top section. Take a paper or plastic cup and turn it up side down holding firmly over shaft section, turn water on to toilet ,water is going to come out under pressure so be prepared to hold cup firmly to catch water and divert it down into tank. This will allow any dirt or scale in the line to be flushed out. Turn water back off reassemble cap section and turn water back on.try flushing toilet to see if problem has been solved.
Hope this helps.

My amana washer barely spins but makes a jackhammer sound in spin cycle

The "jackhammer" sound is that the load (and hence, the "basket" it's in) is out of balance, causing the basket to spin in an eliptical motion.
Some washer (like mine) will momentarily shut off when it senses this, and restart when the basket slows down enough to make the out of balance condition go away, unless it starts in again, then it'll shut down again and restart.
If this is what is happening, the washer keeps shutting off and restarting, making it appear that the basket is spinning slowly, as it never gets up to full speed.
Try redistributing the load when this happens.
Also, the usually is a spring arm with a rubber "snubber" on the end that presses against the top of the basket, to help dampen an out of balance condition.
The spring over time weakens, and the dampening action is lessened.

Loud repeating noise until the water trigger is pressed

Check the pressure washer for leaks. That sound is probably the unloader valve recycling as the machine slowly looses pressure and needs to build it up again to max pressure.

Kenmore Ultra Wash water supply started making loud noise while water is entering washer. If you turn on sink faucet at the same time the noise will stop.

It sounds like the solenoid valves which let in the water are not fully opening and causing chatter -- probably corroded . Turning the washer-water supply faucets down (to the left) will probably stop it, but the solenoid valves need to be checked.

The reason opening the sink faucet stops the noise is that it reduces the water pressure to the washer -- this is the same effect as turning the washer faucets down.

Dishwasher starts to fill then starts make a jackhammer sound

OK. I bet there is a chunk of mineral build up that it loose inside the water line leading up to the valve. Either the one in the dishwasher, or the one at the cutoff under the sink.

Turn the water off under the sink. Access the bottom of the dishwasher, and disconnect the water line from the valve. Put the end of the line in a bucket or some type of tray, and turn the water on to see if the chunk comes out. Try to turn the water on as hard as you can to try and blow the chunk free. If nothing comes out, look inside the valve where you disconnected it to see if you can see anything.

If it doesn't come out, or you don't see it come out, try connecting everything back up and testing to see if you might have missed it coming out.

Same thing could be happening at the valve under the sink, and that one is a little harder to purge.

One other thing to listen for is to be laying on the floor neat the dishwasher when the stop occurs, listening for what goes "clunk". It might be in the dishwasher, it might be under the sink. At least by isolating where it happens, you'll know where to look.

Admiral Refrigerator makes hollow ice

Hollow ice cubes are due to low water pressure to the fridge. Water thru the door should have good pressure behind it. This is a good indicator of water pressure. Should be able to fill a glass quickly. Causes for low pressure are self-piercing saddle valves on the water line (switch to drill type (1/4") valve) or reverse osmosis system or filtering system on water line to the fridge. R.O. systems should not be used. Increase water pressure and that will fix the hollow cubes. The loud noise may be the sound of the water valve on the fridge when it is acivated. This sound is normal and some are louder than others.
